- Spontaneous plans can interrupt the schedule
I'm the kind of person who would love to have themed trees in every room (yes, I like to theme rooms for events as we recall.) A Disney tree here, a red & green tree there - the possibilities are really endless. Right now, I'm thankful to have not one, but two trees. We started this 'one real tree, one artificial tree' concept when we moved to Carmel a few years ago.
On the main floor, we have the 'real' tree full representing our relationship and adventures throughout the years. It includes ornaments from our travels (we always purchase a cook book and/or ornament when we travel) as well as ornaments that we give to each other for special occasions (which is mostly the holidays.) Inspired by Fun & Fearless, I wanted to show you a few of my favorites:
Quick explanations: The Mickey/Minnie ears represent our wedding as we were introduced wearing our own hats, the Mickey ornaments were purchased during our Disney vacations (the Santa bearing Mouse ears was from our engagement trip and the other is from this past summer) and the Canadian bear is from the Granville Market in Vancouver during our anniversary vacation. And of course hub's favorite:
Downstairs, the artificial tree has been switched up this year. In the past, it was known as the 'blue tree.' Since I bought the Disney topper during the girls' vacation at WDW this past summer, I've shifted our red and green bow downstairs. Thus, all those blue ornaments wouldn't really fit the scheme, so I expanded a bit.
Instead, ornaments I received growing up now hang. Every Christmas my mother would give me an ornament, here are few of my favorites:
The house is bright with lights as the holiday cheer is surrounding us (especially with this chilly weather in the air.) A busy weekend is ahead including today's activity for Day 3, tomorrow's activity and the End of Movember Gala (there is still time to donate!), and I'm off to Purdue on Sunday for a Sorority function before our Day 5 activity. Busy busy!
Any big weekend plans? How is your holiday decor coming along - are you in the holiday spirit?
